ESB? Wha?

Pretty provocative. Not my thing, but def a powerful, far-out thing.

Not bad, but not impressive. Very drinkable with a smooth finish.

Pours a murky dark orange to red. An off white, one-finger head. Very little carbonation. Slight malty pine smell with slight funk. The malt from an amber ale is very good. This really sets a nice stage for a sweet piney hop to come through. The sweet is a mix of slight apple/cherry hard candy. Very interesting. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a medium body. The balance is right on. This one is underrated for FFF.

Very true to the style slightly on the hoppy side, that being said the style isn't incredibly exciting. Very drinkable beer all around.

Pours a dark copper with little head. Smell is pine, citrus with some carmel in the background. Carmel, citrus, apricot, and pine. Compared to most ESB's the hops and malt are both turned up, the citrus notes feel out of place but it's still fairly balanced. Fullers ESB is still my go to but if you want an american twist this shouldn't disappoint.
